I enjoyed my one night stay here. The motel was built in the 30's and added on to and remodeled many times but still retains the retro look. The recent remodel was done well and the room I had was clean and modern but still had retro touches. The place was quiet, except for a little road noise in the... More

Comfortable bed. Clean room. Friendly Staff. We did not have breakfast there because we had a brunch at the University for Family Weekend, but the breakfast smelled delicious! Our son left a small book in the room when we checked out. We called & the nice front desk man went to the room, found it, & sealed it in an... More

Nice, clean hotel. It has a lot of character and history. It is set up like a the old travel inns but is thoroughly modern. We would definitely stay there again. The room was nicely decorated. It had a mini fridge and a microwave, which is so nice to have. There was an iron and ironing board. The beds were... More

Holli_Dayze: Thank you for your review. Our rooms tend to be smaller, as well as the bathrooms are smaller but well appointed for their uses. You are right about an "old fashioned motel" we aren't like the typical newer hotel, but that's what makes us different from all the others. I hope the rest of your trip in the states... More

This is an old Route 66 hotel. Rooms are smaller but nice & clean. Very quaint. Liked being able to park in front of room. Hotel staff suggested dinner place. Breakfast was good. Breakfast area was small. Friendly place.

himicats: Thank you for taking time to review our hotel. Our rooms are a little smaller but housekeeping works very hard in making sure the rooms are clean. Breakfast area is quaint and can be small when we have a full house. Being able to park in front of the room is convenient for loading and unloading your car. More

We were intrigued by the description of this motel online and as we love the 50s & 60s, we booked a room for one night as we were going to be in the area for a family member's wedding. We loved everything about it! Would definitely stay there again and will recommend it to our family and friends.

Most of my trip was great and I would certainly stay again. Only cons were that the water wasn't as hot as I would have liked it to be and I had to call for new towels. The room was small but clean and sufficient and the staff was super friendly and helpful.

Carmelina P: Thank you for your review. I am sorry you had troubles with the water at the hotel, we do have to keep it regulated to a certain temperature so that no one guest burned from the water getting overly hot. I will follow up with housekeeping in regards to not having clean towels, they should have left them... More
